A Great Day For A Drive

Sunday was beautiful. Kevin and I got out of church and it was a beautiful sunny day. Such a difference from the day before. We thought a walk through Ledges State Park would be just the thing to do on such a gorgeous day. We wanted to make sure Allison would be free, so we finally got a hold of her and headed to Ames.

Ledges never happened, but instead, we went to an apple orchard, a quick walk through the mall, and then down town to an art festival. Dinner at Great Plains Pizza, and then gelato. It was fun hanging out with Allison and Emmy all afternoon and evening. I am glad we decided to make this quick trip.

We also got to visit with Travis and Logan for a while. We saw Logan's new motorcycle, and admired Travis's free engine he just got. It was nice seeing these young gentlemen. I'm glad it worked out that we could.

We drove home under a beautiful harvest moon. I tried to take several photos, but nothing did it justice... thus, no cool moon photo. :-(

(Kris was in Wisconsin with Melinda and her family on Sunday. We had gotten to hang out with them on Saturday. We watched the UNI/ISU game and went shopping, and even played Guitar Hero. Like I said, Saturday was a gloomy, drizzly day. I hate to admit it, but we even had to turn on the furnace.)

Well it was about 60 in the house and a little too cool because of all the dampness.
